Well, I just submitted my mainstream comedy cop thriller to the Court TV crime fiction contest. Crossing fingers. Grand prize (only prize) is $1000.00 and a chance to be published by Reagan Press (imprint of Harper Collins). I don't know if they'll bite on it since it's got such a tongue-in-cheek comedy element, but it's a shot. I know where I want to sub it if it doesn't get selected by CTV though, so it's cool and no pressure (much anyway, lol). I am anxious for December 11th now since that's the 1st round judging.

I'll find out about the first round on December 11th. Final judging I believe is something like the 28th of December.

The same story (1st chapter) is also entered in 'City Paper's' crime story contest. The deadline for that one is Dec 11th, I'm not exactly sure when they notify on it.

It's gonna be a tense December around here. LOL
